Next to a bunch of interviews out of the field, this page called ‘The Ivory Tower’ collects long reads, videos or other media that could give interesting perspectives from a theoretical point of view. Smart people enough on the internet, right.

This time a talk from Tomáš Sedláček. Find more about him on his own website, or Wikipedia. He calls the (EU) crises manic depressed. The current situation is not a crisis of capitalism, but speaks about it as a crisis of growth. His argument is that the science of economics these days is putting to much emphasis on methods without paying much attention on substance. The short intro is in Dutch. Tomas speaks English.

If you have another video or link from a smart economic professor with an opposite view? Share it.
